A flavorful and harmonious Zinfandel from the Stoetz Ridge Vineyard near the western edge of the Russian River AVA. All the components are in balance here - the ripe cherry fruit dosed with pomegranate and cranberry, the acid and tannin levels, the relatively low alcohol, and the lively underlying spiciness. Because of its balance, it's a great food wine. I think I liked this one as much as the more expensive '07 Morelli Lane Zin. - HK 2009-12-17
